Portland Leftists Put Targets on Backs of Cops Involved in Shootings

Portland, Oregon, cops, already diminished, demoralized, and defunded, are being targeted, yet again, by Leftists who have intentionally put a target on their backs. Officers involved in two shooting incidents were outed and doxxed by anti-police Leftists. After a third officer-involved shooting, Portland Police refused to divulge the officer’s identity.

Portland Police union leaders say doxxers have followed officers home and issued flyers with officers’ names and photos in their neighborhoods.

After the three Portland cops were involved in shootings this week, Antifa, BLM, and other Leftists responded by doxxing two of the officers by publicizing their names, addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information. Considering the violent nature of the groups doxxing the officers, they’re essentially putting a hit out on the police.

KGW TV reported that the police union president, Sgt. Aaron Schmautz, demanded the officer’s name from the latest police shooting be hidden.

“Transparency is very important,” said Sgt. Aaron Schmautz, president of the Portland Police Association. “It’s a vital cog in accountability. But when we see officers threatened before there’s any due process before the investigation has even gotten off the ground, people followed home, people having flyers put up in their neighborhood, family members being threatened, this isn’t about transparency. This is about utilizing an event to create chaos and threaten the safety of police officers. It’s just not acceptable. What’s very important is we work together to call out those actors, call out those people.”

The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) issued a statement on the doxxing of the cops in the previous two incidents (one on Tuesday and last Sunday, and the other on Wednesday).

PPB is currently investigating concerns related to doxing and threats to PPB members and/or their families related to recent officer-involved shootings. The investigation of possible doxing and threats raises safety concerns for officers involved in shootings. PPB has determined that there are credible security threats to officers involved in recent shootings and therefore, PPB is withholding the name of the involved member during the pendency of the doxing investigation. Once the investigation is completed, PPB will reassess the security threat and will release the name of the officer involved in the shooting when the threat no longer exists.

Portland’s homicide rate is up by 144 percent, thanks to Antifa and BLM riots demanding the defunding of police. Compared to cities of similar size, Portland has a 207 percent increase in shootings.

BLM and Antifa routinely frame police-involved shootings as cops hunting black men. For example, Portland Police are often depicted as the bad guys in the death of Patrick Kimmons. But Leftists always leave out the part of the story in which Kimmons had just shot two gangsters and refused to drop his weapon when ordered by police.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler this week issued a weak message that basically said, “C’mon, you guys, cut it out!” and also declared an “emergency.”

The FBI issued a statement demanding people stop attacking cops, saying that “the level of violence we are seeing in Portland and the direct disregard for law enforcement is unacceptable.” It also asked Portlanders to “rally behind our police officers.”

Of course, Antifa, BLM, and their fellow travelers in their criminal gang will never do that. The laxity with which city, county, and state officials have dealt with their pet professional protesters has just emboldened the groups’ overt hatred, disrespect, and violence toward police officers.

It’s doubtful that Leftist defense attorneys at the county prosecutor’s officer would ever punish Antifa, BLM, and any others for intentionally doxxing officers, even when it’s obvious they do so with the hope that officers will be hurt or killed.

We believe in civil rights. Police are able to exercise deadly force under state police powers. It’s a big responsibility. Yet, unlike Antifa and BLM, we don’t believe that every police officer acts recklessly in every officer-involved shooting. The only ones acting with impunity are the ones doxxing cops with the goal that someone follows, finds, and finishes them off.

Portland asked for this chaos. This is what it looks like when criminal gangs run their city.

  1. I am amazed there are still law enforcement officers living and working in Oregon, at least in the Portland area! They should all have left and let ’em have it their way, before long they would have all killed each other!

    • There were essentially no police before about 1900, and things were much better without them.

      • There might not have been a police department in Portland until 1900 , but in 1854 Multnomah County Sheriffs department was established.

      • What kind of moron crap is that you idiot. Let me guess… you’re a face covering ass for ANTIFA.
        Let’s put Jack asses like you in the middle of gang town and spew your garbage.
        I wonder how long your sorry ass would last.

  2. The police had no reason to shoot Kimmons.
    Sure he had a gun, but needed it seconds before, in defense.
    And he not only did not point it at the police, but was facing the other was and never saw the police until they started shooting.
    The police shooting clearly was wrong, excessive, and down right evil to shoot him 12 times.

  3. They need the Hells Angels to come to Portland and serve street justice to the assholes. They will go running home to their mommy’s basement

  4. The entire Portland police force should stand down for a month and let the people understand how life would be without law enforcement. I guarantee this ridiculous attitude would end and quickly. Anarchy is not a reasonable approach to a civil society. I know nothing of the current shootings and can not say if they are justified but I can say for a fact that leaving the streets to gun toting thugs will result in the deaths of innocent people. I’ve noticed the foolish comments on this report and noticed that not one claimed the criminal was innocent of the suspected crimes. Yet they are completely on board with sacrificing the officers involved. If they are not justified that’s what the court system is for. Vigilantes are not a reasonable response in a civilized society. You are very confused if you believe this is an acceptable manner in which to handle these things because immediately putting law enforcement in danger will inevitably result in criminals running amuck. Good luck reasoning with gang banging thugs.

    The police should adopt a bibical policy. Do unto other as they have done unto you… I am sure there are numerous people who would like to take the job on.

    • Hey idiot, I’m sure you think your safe from violence in your hole and think everyone owes you something. Let me guess your a BLM member or some pathetic fat slob that voted for Biden to get your free ride in life.
      These f…ing parasites are criminals that are destroying and killing America.
      If they were not breaking the law and doing wrong then there’s no problem. That parasite George Floyd is a perfect example of being a piece of garbage high on respiratory depressant drugs and a fricking criminal, but made to be a victim . What a crock!
      We need our police department and should give them martial law rules to contain this domestic terrorism.
      So fat Freddy, when your being robbed or assaulted call your social worker or crime buddies!
      I think the police should avoid your 911 call!

  6. There comes a time when the police need to cut their losses and retreat to another city to fight another day. Really, Portland Police officers, let the liberal scum have their city all to themselves and suffer the ruination they deserve. There are other cities where your services will be greatly appreciated.

  7. Ha – the only problem with calling off the police is then u have Antifa BLM gain strength thru the Democrat party. The Democrat party along with the media are funding BLM. Wonder why these terrorist organizations are not disbanded the media tells us they are activists bringing much needed change.
